hey after reading a article on flex magazine, that the best way to lose fat is to run on a empty stomach first thing in the morning?
cos ur body doesnt have any carsb to burn as fuel so it taps into fat for energy is this true??
today i did this, i woke up in morning had a cup of coffee and went for a light jogg/walk in the woods and after had porridge and eggs and whey shake.
i generally eat healthy all week but have a cheat day on saturady where i might have a burger or pizza. i drink about 4-5literes water a day.
i train with weights 3-4 days a week hard and do light cardio 2-3 times after weight traing for approx 30mins.
can ye help me please people thanks

I have read few articles about this particular topic. Almost all of the articles I read say that do any cardio in the morning burns fat first. I believe it does NOT burn more fat but rather starts burning fat FASTER because the body doesn't have any carbs or glycogen to fuel itself. So if you do 20 minutes of cardio on a empty stomach you'll burn more fat than if you ran after you eat. How much more fat you burn is beyond me. This is all my interpretation please correct me if I missed something.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
